Alzheimer's & Dementia


Dementia is a disease that is characterized by loss of brain abilities,                     
causing decreased cognitive function.
                                            

                                                                                                                                                   
Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia, and affects the memory, thinking and behavior of an estimated 5.4 million Americans, according to the Alzheimer's Association.                                                                             

Symptoms of Alzheimer's disease typically start to set in when the patient is over the age of 60. When symptoms such as forgetfulness or thinking problems develop before age 60, it is classified as early onset Alzheimer's disease.

This testimonial is given for Nurse Asia Zafir who is caregiver for me and my wife. she is an outstanding professional in her duties. She has caught over-subscribing meds for my wife, of which the Dr agreed and sent a compliment for her on catching the problem. For me who had a heart attack three years ago and had breathing problems so bad I could not function properly for the whole time, she caught  poor lung function and put me on the breath unit that you exercise your lungs, and within two days I was able to walk around without physical fatigue and now almost back to full strength. Her professional knowledge seems excellent and her calm caring personality is a pleasure to see each visit. Getting her to smile is a challenge of which I get great pleasure. She is very caring and through on all commitments to recommendations to Drs for suggestions and diagnosis. I have seen over the years many nurses, and Asia is one of the best I have encountered.
